Besides Saeed's son Talha, Sajid Mir and Amir Hamza, the others designated as terrorists by the US Treasury Department are Abdullah Mujahid, Ahmed Yaqub, Hafiz Khalid Walid, Qari Muhammad Yaqoob Sheikh and Abdullah Muntazir.
A statement from the US Treasury said the eight men were "directly responsible for the murderous 2008 Mumbai attacks as well as attacks on coalition and Afghan forces" in Afghanistan.
The designations are aimed at undermining "LeT's leadership and support networks of LeT that have planned terrorist attacks around the world".
Though the LeT was banned by Pakistan in 2002, the US Treasury Department said it continued to operate in the country and the region, and is engaged in or supports terrorist activities around the world.
The LeT was designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organisation by the US State Department in 2001. Hafiz Saeed continues to live and operate openly in Lahore despite a USD 10-million reward offered for him by the US earlier this year.
Sajid Mir alias Sajid Majeed was born in Lahore and is a senior commander of the LeT. He allegedly worked with David
Headley, a Pakistani-American who pled guilty to scouting targets in Mumbai and admitted he helped plan the attacks in
November 2008, the US Treasury said.
Mir has been accused of training and guiding the terrorists involved in the Mumbai attacks. He directed the surveillance conducted by Headley and was responsible for LeT's external operations, overseas recruiting and money laundering.
Saeed's son Talha was linked to a Pakistani-American named Jubair Ahmed who was given a 12-year prison term by a US
court in April for providing material support to the LeT.
Ahmed, 24, was arrested last year for promoting LeT's activities through online propaganda, recruiting others and fundraising.
Ahmed confessed he had established contacts with Talha Saeed, who asked him to make a video that featured a prayer by Hafiz Saeed calling for support for jihad and mujahideen. He subsequently made the video and uploaded it on YouTube.
Reports in the Pakistani media have said that Talha developed links with Ahmed when he visited the US for a beard transplant.
Amir Hamza No 3 leader in JuD
Amir Hamza is widely considered to be the number 3 leader in the JuD after Saeed and his deputy Abdul Rahman Makki.
He is also a member of the Defa-e-Pakistan Council that has been spearheading protests against India and the US across the country since late last year.
Abdullah Muntazir a spokesman for both the LeT and JuD
Abdullah Muntazir, who too was designated a terrorist by the US, has served as a spokesman for both the LeT and JuD. A former journalist who began his career in the Urdu language Daily Ausaf, Muntazir was closely involved with the publications and online activities of the LeT and JuD.
Muntazir was the founder editor of the Ghazwa, a weekly newspaper published by the JuD. He claimed he had cut off ties with the JuD in 2009 and emerged as an analyst on terrorism.
Muntazir also set up the Islamabad-based Conflict Monitoring Center, which he described as an independent research centre focussing on "inter-state and intra-state armed conflicts".
However, intelligence sources toldthat Muntazir continued to have close ties with the leadership of the LeT and JuD.
Some reports have suggested that Muntazir was the person as Abdullah Ghaznavi, who claims to be the Srinagar-based spokesman of the Lashkar-e-Taiba.
